  3. Please note there is a new rule regarding the posting of videos. It reads, "Post a summary of the videos you post . An exception can be made for music videos.". Unless you are simply sharing music, please post a summary, or the gist, of the video you wish to share.

  5. CF Staff, Angels and Ambassadors; ask that you join us in praying for the world in this difficult time, asking our Holy Father to stop the spread of the virus, and for healing of all affected.
  6. We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.

Prayerful Praise

    We are by Christ redeemed;
    The cost, His precious blood;
    Be nothing by our souls esteemed
    Like this great good.
    Were the vast world our own,
    With all its varied store,
    An Thou, Lord Jesus, wert unknown,
    We still were poor.

    Our earthen vessels break;
    The world itself grows old;
    But Christ our precious dust will take
    And freshly mold;
    He'll give these bodies vile
    A fashion like His own;
    He'll bid the whole creation smile,
    And hush its groan.

    Thus far by grace preserved,
    Each moment speeds us on;
    The crown and kingdom are reserved
    Where Christ is gone.
    When cloudless morning shines,
    We shall His glory share;
    In pleasant places are the lines;
    The home how fair!

    To Him our weakness clings
    Through tribulation sore,
    And seeks the covert of His wings
    Till all be o'er.
    And when we've run the race
    And fought the faithful fight,
    We then shall see Him face to face,
    With saints in light.

    Rise my soul! behold 'tis Jesus.
    Jesus fill thy wond'ring eyes;
    See Him now in glory seated,
    Where thy sins no more can rise.

    There in righteousness transcendent,
    Lo! He doth in Heaven appear,
    Show the blood of His atonement
    As thy title to be there.

    All thy sins were laid upon Him,
    Jesus bore them on the tree;
    God, who knew them, laid them on Him.
    And, believing, thou art free.

    God now brings thee to His dwelling,
    Spreads for thee His feast divine,
    Bibs thee welcome, ever telling,
    What a portion there is thine.

    Blessed, glorious word: "forever" --
    Yea, "forever" is the word;
    Nothing can the ransomed sever,
    Naught divide them from the Lord.

    --J. Denham Smith
